We Are Open

Nice tracks.

Open, 8º at 7am, forecast high 26º

22k open. Turkey, Woodcock, Snow Goose, Grouse and Chickadee all ready to go. Still working on Goshawk and Upper and Middle Blue Jay. 

Check in when you arrive for more details.  The skiing is good, ground up frozen granular. The tracks are beautiful.

Ian started this morning early. He was grooming by the time I looked out at 3:20am. And right now he is taking a coffee break to watch the sprint finals. He will be back in the groomer as soon as the sprints are done. Hopefully the USA will have a medal. It is amazing that we can even have that expectation. Keeping it short so I can watch. ...

Not Today, But, We Will Be Open Tomorrow.

My favorite spot.

Closed 31º at 7am. The temperature dropping all day with a low tonight of 4º.

The roller coaster of temperatures and weather this year. I don’t have to tell you. Too warm, too cold, too snowy, too rainy, too sandy, too icy. Just tooooooooo………Time to get out your ice cleats again. Martha told Chuck yesterday, she doesn’t take anymore chances, she wears them. If in doubt, put them on. (mine are on my shoes) ...

What is Your Excuse? Good Spring Skiing.

And the groomer tests out the tracks.

Open, 31º at 7am. Forecast high of 33º.

Spring skiing conditions today. 24 k open, groomed and tracked. Ian just came in from skiing the Turkey and it is good skiing. Soft, moist snow. Beautiful in the woods.

In the last week, 22 inches of snow have fallen. The skiing has been absolutely fantastic. Yes, even yesterday. There were a lot of skiers here yesterday. Some big groups. And a few couples and singles who came skiing and skied by themselves while the others from there group stayed back at the lodge reading and watching TV.  ...

Good, Good Skiing to be Had Today

Snow flee ski.

We had the best ski around the Lower Blue Jay. The tracks were great we skied right up the hills. The downhill was slow, but fun. And the kids brought home snow fleas, which are now being housed in my refrigerator.

And the Skiing is Fine

Good tracks at the beginning of the Blue Jay.

Open, 26º at 6:30am, forecast high 40º. 1/2 inch of new snow.

In the last week it snowed about 2 feet. All trails are open and have a double track thanks to our new grooming rig.

That snow has been groomed to perfection by Ian. (His birthday is today, somebody get him an egg sandwich from Bromley Market, and everybody else give him a hug.) ...
